AM+A designed the appearance and assisted in the overall UI development for a Web-based task management and project collaboration application. needed AM+A to design the appearance and detailed interaction for its Web-based task management and project collaboration application. Working from an existing prototype, AM+A quickly re-organized commands and displays, and upgraded the appearance design to prepare for a round of user assessment sessions and investor presentations.

Intended as a light project management tool for individuals and groups, provides a means to record, classify, sort, assign, and track tasks related to projects that may involve large, geographically dispersed teams. It also provides e-mail and scheduling tools to further facilitate tele-collaboration.
